IJAW Youths Council (IYC) Worldwide has mourned Prof. Kimse Okoko, a two-time president of Ijaw National Congress (INC).
Sources said Okoko (80) died Sunday in Port Harcourt. His son, Keniebi, died earlier this year.
A statement by its President, Peter Igbifa, described Okoko’s death as a double jeopardy. He said the deceased was a scholar, leader, father and patriot.
It reads: “Okoko’s death, coming a few months after his son’s death, is a double jeopardy and an incalculable loss to the Ijaw nation.
